linuxdevcenter.com :
For years, I've wanted a digital camera. Both my father and brother had one; why not me? Then one day it happened: I had been working a new contract for about a month when the boss said it was time we met. He was in New York City and here I was in Ottawa. Coincidentally, NYC-bug (pronounced "nice bug") had invited my girlfriend to go see Eric Allman and Kirk McKusick talk at a BSD user group meeting. Of course, being the natural born tourist that I am, I had to buy one immediately.

Over the past year, we have seen significant strides put fourth by the different vendors in the area of PCI Express with blazing fast graphics solutions, Socket-T processors which stunned the computer community by migrating all of the processor pins to the motherboard, along with other areas such as memory performance. At Phoronix, we have spent the last couple of weeks pondering over what really should go into a reliable Linux computer system for carrying out everyday productive tasks, along with some gaming, that can compete with today's demands along with whatever the future may throw our way. Keeping the budget concisions enthusiast in mind, the fully loaded workstation costs about $1500.

Most Linux users know how easily they can run a Web server on their favorite distros. Unfortunately, serving pages is one thing -- finding them is another. That's when many users turn to ht://Dig. ht://Dig is more than a simple search script for a Web site. It combines a powerful collection of command-line search utilities with an easy-to-use CGI script. Properly configured, they work together to form a robust, extensible search engine for a domain or intranet. Read More...

oracle.com :
This is the first in a series of guides that provide all the steps for installing the major components of Oracle 10g software on Linux. All three of the certified English-language distributions of Linux are covered in detail (Asianux is not covered), and the articles assume that inexpensive Intel x86 hardware is being used. The articles walk through the process of installation and configuration on commodity hardware for the purpose of evaluating the major Oracle 10g products.

The ultimate goal of this series is to walk through installing and configuring all of the components of a 10g Grid. Along the way, you will see how to install and configure a single instance Oracle 10g database (this article), a two-node Oracle RAC 10g database, all the major components of Oracle Application Server 10g and Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control.

linux.com: Many of the popular Linux distributions today include Postfix (written by Wietse Venema) as their choice for default mail transport agent. I've come to really appreciate the benefits of Postfix as a sendmail replacement. The advantages of Postfix include enhanced security, relatively simple configuration, and excellent performance.
Postfix's increased security comes partly from its modular design. Each process handles some portion of the mail delivery cycle and none of these processes run setuid root. As has been observed, Postfix doesn't even trust itself.

Thanks to its speed and stability, MySQL has earned a place on millions of servers worldwide. MySQL has a simple and effective security mechanism, but administrators must perform a few additional tasks to make a default installation truly secure. The measures we'll talk about below will enable you to better secure your database, but be sure to secure the underlying operating system too.
